Zachary Braces & Invisalign
Traditional metal braces in Zachary are one of the most efficient orthodontic tools we have. They’re made out of metal or ceramic brackets that are affixed to the teeth, then connected by wires and tiny rubber bands or elastics. These brackets, wires, and bands work together to apply the gentle pressure that will gradually move the teeth into the positions we want them to be in as long as you have regular adjustments with Dr. White.
Invisalign aligners are made of a comfortable plastic material and customized to fit snugly over your teeth. You’ll need to switch your invisible trays out for the next one in the series every 1-2 weeks as directed by Dr. White to keep your teeth moving in the direction you want them to. The Invisalign system can only work if you follow the recommended guidelines precisely as directed! You should wear your aligners should be worn 20-22 hours per day throughout treatment. If patients neglect to wear the aligners as directed, it can impede the results and add time to the orthodontic process.
